if there is an accident to review what happened. i know there's a technology called positive train and control or ptc designed to automatically stop or slow a train before certain accidents occur to prevent train to train collisions or derailments. do we know if this train had that technology? >> we know that this train did not have that technology. now, let's talk a little bit about the technology. it's a communications and signaling system that the ntsb says is capable of preventing accidents caused by human error. specifically excessive speed. also, failure to obey signals. now the technology, what it does is uses wi-fi and gps signals along with sensors along the railroad track to essentially track the train's location and speed restrictions. if the train is going too fast, well, on board equipment automatically either stops or slows down the train. again, this train did not have that technology. however, congress has set a december, 2015 deadline for all passenger trains and freight trains carrying hazardous materials to have this technology, wolf. >> rene will have a lot more on this story comi

is technology may help us. there are now systems that rely on gps and satellite information more so than intensive equipment on the tracks. that would help in those situations where the passengers trains travel over tracks that are privately owned by other companies. it will take congress ordered it and in many cases, there are financial incentives, tax incentives, et cetera, cost sharing with the government that might have to happen. but it will take congress ordering the trains to complete this, because the honor, the trust and obey system has resulted in amtrak and a few others. it needs to go on passenger trains first. the bullet train in japan has this and that's why they can achieve speeds of 200 miles an hour. >> mary schiavo, thank you very much. the information. >> thank you. >> if you are in a train accident what steps can you take to be as safe as possible? something as simple as choosing the best seat could make all the difference. cnn's chris lawrence is in washington with more on that. what have you learned, chris? >> we'll tell you what a national safety expert tells his o

, the ntsb has recommended the implementation of ptc technology. broadly speaking, we know that human error can't be eradicated and that ptc is capable of supplementing the human operation. these systems provide a safety redundancy by slowing or stopping a train that's not being operated in accordance with signals, speed limits or other operating rules. ptc is proven technology that can prevent train-to-train collisions, overspeed derailments, and incursions into work zones. since this is a derailment involving a high-speed train, it's possible ptc could have prevented it. while this is our last on-scene media briefing, our work on this investigation is far from complete. investigators will continue interviewing the crew and employees of metro north and will interview passengers on the train and additional first responders as necessary. they will also complete some testing of the signal system and documentation and inspection of the rail cars and the locomotives. i'd like to express my sincere appreciation to all the responders and officials from state and local new york government. at ever
